Anja Hammerseng-Edin, handball player, considers that there is too much fear in our society.
We are all scared, concerned that we don't look good enough, we are not successful enough in our job, we are not good enough as parents, partners, siblings, friends. Our inner critic often holds us back from challenging ourselves. That is the irritating voice persuading you that this could be difficult, the voice saying that you are not good enough, the voice making you afraid. Why do we allow fear to have so much control over our lives? What would life look like if YOU were fearless?
Fearless is about internal strength training. Our own thoughts and beliefs control our feelings. The brain is a flexible, living organ which can be influenced by training, and with good inner strength we can fashion new ways of thinking and new levels of achievement. We can take control over the inner critic. We can direct our feelings in the direction we want them to go, and thereby dare to do what we were frightened to do before. Anja Hammerseng-Edin gives you the best techniques for developing inner strength, including mental exercises, visualising and positive reinforcement, and she shows you the significance of physical and psychological strength.
The book builds on her experience, but the techniques are explained by expert professionals. Through the accounts of her experiences from sport and elsewhere, the author demonstrates how challenges and adversities can be turned into new opportunities.
